About Northwest High School

Northwest High School is the flagship high school of Northwest ISD, having originated with the district’s founding in 1951.

The district was founded when several smaller districts decided to consolidate to provide the best education possible. They established Northwest High School as the district’s first high school; its current campus was built in 1988, and the school has seen several upgrades in the decades since its creation.

Located in Fort Worth with a Justin mailing address, Northwest serves students from many surrounding communities. Beyond academic offerings afforded to them, Northwest offers many after-school programs – the school is known for its strong FFA teams, student clubs and extracurricular opportunities.

Northwest is respected for its strong school pride and heritage, with tremendous community support for students as they compete in athletics, fine arts, and other programs.

The school is home to two of the district’s academies, Creative Media Production (CMP) and the Academy of STEM. Both academies combine to give the school a cutting-edge technological focus. The school’s NHSTV program, for instance, was recently named the top student-run live TV show in the Southwest U.S. for two consecutive years.
